Michael Jackson's name makes it's way into scam email

I never thought that I would be mentioning Michael Jackson’s name in a scam blog, but I guess this just proves that the scammers will stop at nothing and will use anything they think will get people’s attention. I found the following email in my spam folder the other day.


From: Hope
you receive this message!!!

Hope you receive this message!!!On
behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Michael Jackson. I
once again try to notify you as my earlier letter were returned undelivered. I
wish to notify you that late King of Pop. Michael Jackson made you a beneficiary
to his WILL. He left the sum of Five Million, Dollars (USD$5,000.000.00) to you
in the Codicil and last testament to his WILL. This may sound strange and
unbelievable to you, but it is real and true. Being widely entertainer, he must
have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to him by
one of his numerous fans abroad who wished you good. Late Michael Joseph Jackson
until his death was a member "MJFC" The Michael Jackson Fan Club and the
Institute of entertainer. Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get
back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job. You are advice to
contact me with my personal email: your
prompt response.100Yours in Service, BARRISTER John Branca ESQ.


I cannot believe it! I never even when to one of his concerts . . . I did purchase the Thriller album . . . but out of all of the people in the world to pick from, Michael Jackson picked ME to a beneficiary to his will.

I guess this means that I need to add a new section to our message board for Dead Celebrity Scams.
